Star-Studded FiFi Awards Held at Lincoln Center

Fragrance fans got an eyeful at this year’s celebratory FiFi Award ceremony held at the tent at New York’s Lincoln Center, May 25, 2011. Rochelle Bloom, President of The Fragrance Foundation, presided over the gala event, which this year presented more than 30 FiFi statuettes for achievements in fragrance creation.

 
The evening began with red carpet excitement, as arrivals, including Halle Berry, Fergie, Padma Lakshmi, Kate Walsh, Desiree Rogers, Tiffany Amber Thiessen, Nate Berkus, Cat Cora, and Trey Songz entered the tent. As the lights came down, Rochelle Bloom welcomed the audience to Lincoln Center once again, saying, “This is an appropriate homecoming, as Lincoln Center has become home to Fashion Week, and fragrance is the most important fashion accessory.” Bloom encouraged tweeting from the event, noting the FiFi Awards were tied-in to technology, and provided the hashtag, “FiFi2011,” for the evening’s festivities.


Bloom acknowledged the important work of the Jenesse Center, represented by honoree, Halle Berry and the “What a Little Love Can Do Project,” and Fergie, for The Avon Foundation. For the second year, proceeds from The FiFi Online Charity Auction benefited the evening’s honorees. Bloom and Jill Belasco, Fragrance Foundation Chairwoman of the Board and President of Maesa Group, also acknowledged premier sponsor, Condé Nast, as well as Lucky Magazine, LuxePack. Macy’s, and Maesa Group, for their support.

Bloom also introduced a special tribute to Elizabeth Taylor, whose White Diamonds fragrance has remained one of the all-time bestsellers, and inducted her into the Hall of Fame. The winners in all categories were as follows.

 
No doubt about it, Fergie loves fragrance!

The Fragrance Foundation is currently engaged in a number of initiatives to further the exploration and pleasures of fragrance. To entice consumers, in September 2010, the organization partnered with Fashion’s Night Out, bringing carts of blossoming flowers to locations around the city, including the main floor of Macy’s. In the educational arena, the Foundation offered a series of five new “Top Notes” courses, providing current fragrance trends, that will become part of the Certified Fragrance Sales Specialist education initiative; and the Foundation’s Sense of Smell Institute also commissioned Tyler Loring, PhD, to prepare a white paper reviewing recent studies on odor perception.

In addition, the Foundation is truly global now, with Foundation licensees or partnerships in the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Germany, Japan, and the United Arab Emirates. They have also signed a licensing agreement with Perfumery Club in Moscow to establish the first FiFi Awards in Russia.
